Worship at St. Johns

We want you to feel welcome at St. Johns!

Our vision is Connect with Christ, Church and Community. When we come together to worship, we desire to “Connect” with Christ which is done in our two different of styles of worship on Sunday morning. Both our 9am and 11am services run about 60 minutes and are dismissed with prayer and a blessing. If you have a prayer request, please fill out a connection card and place it in the offering plate as it is passed, and our prayer team will pray for your request.

DRESS

When you visit St. Johns, you will see almost every style of dress. The 9am service is traditional, with business casual attire most common. The 11 a.m.service is more casual. Khakis and polos for men, and casual pants or skirts for women, are fairly typical for both services. Wear what makes you comfortable.

PARKING 

When you arrive at SJPC we have visitor parking spaces on Herschel St in front of the church.  If those spots are filled our main parking lot is on the south side of our campus along Lexington Ave. As you head into our building, we have signs along the sidewalks to help you get to the right place.

SUNDAY SCHOOL

Between the 9am and 11am worship services, is our Sunday School hour. There are several class options to visit. When you come in through the courtyard entrance, you will see our welcome team, who can help you find a group to visit. Adult classes typically form based on common interests or being in the same ‘season’ in life. There are no assigned classes, so feel free to visit a few different groups over several Sundays.

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY

On Sunday mornings, children (K-6th grade) have ‘Sunday Fun Games’ during the 10am hour. They should check in at the Fellowship Hall and will enjoy an hour of fun and games. At 11am children join their families for worship in the sanctuary and enjoy about 20 minutes of music and praise. They exit to Children’s church together, led by several adult and youth volunteers. Toddlers (ages 2-4) are welcome at Toddler Church in the “Mother’s Morning Out” preschool room starting at 11am, and babies (ages 0-2) are dropped off in the crib nursery, immediately inside the courtyard entrance.

YOUTH

Our youth group meets in the “Loft” for Sunday School at 10am. We welcome all youth, from 6th -12th grade. They join everyone in the sanctuary for our service at 11am
